Heroes of Istal
A Human Paladin in service of the Raven Queen
History: Jimmy Bootstraps used to be First Mate to the excentric Devlin Ragebeard, captain of the mighty Feathered Snake, military flagship vessel of Istal, keeping the crew in line with a combination of his natural charisma and some very unsubtle death threats while the captain was occupied with other pursuits.
He served on the vessel for a little under a decade, after hearing rumours of ghostly ships crewed with zombie pirates harassing merchant ships all along the coast line of Istal.
Due to his continued absence his relationship with his fellow servants of the Raven Queen is fairly cool and cordial usually.
His affiliation with the Raven Queen was well-known but not quite understood with the crew and was reason for his appointment as conductor of religious ceremonies for the crew and, much to his personal regret, ship doctor.
After the inevitable falling-out with the captain regarding the healing of a favoured by the captain but ultimately cripplingly wounded crew member which almost degraded into downright mutiny, Jimmy Bootstraps found himself without an employer.
He now wanders the countryside, looking for gold to spend on his next meal and opportunities to smite the enemies of the Raven Queen and do Her bidding.
